to handle that question and did a very good job of raising that issue. john mccain made a great point today when he said people don't bring rpg's and the weaponry that was used in this attack to spontaneous demonstrati demonstration. it's relevant. here is why it matters. when they put out word this was not a terrorist attack, it was sprung out of a spontaneous uprising, it furthers the narrative al-qaeda was in disarray and that we had, by the elimination of bin laden made this extraordinary reduction in the risk in the area. as it it turns out not only was it not true in libya, but other parts of north africa as well and the fundamental question did the administration really believe that? if they did they badly miscalculated or did they know it was true and for political reasons didn't want it out there. they were eliminating the war on terror and these groups and no longer capable of care i go out attacks against the u.s. and one or the other. either they assess wrong that radical terrorists were not capable of care caring out a for the new mattress models, but sleep train's huge year en

for the most part, senator mccain, who has really been one of the most vociferous critics of the straight's approach to benghazi not only before and in the aftermath really was tough on secretary clinton in terms of the answers that she provided to the committee. let's take a listen to an exchange between the senator and secretary clinton. >> i categorically reject your answer to senator johnson. why is it that the administration still refuses to provide the full text of the e-mails regarding the deletion of references to al qaeda in the talking snoints why do we care? the classified information had been included. it gives an entirely different version of events to the american people. going to the american people and tell them what happened, then you ought to have your facts straight. >> well, senator, i understand your very, very strong feelings. you knew chris. you were a friend of chris. you were one of the staunchest supporters of the efforts to dislodge gadhafi and try to give the libyan people a chance, and we just have a disagreement. we have a disagreement about what did happen a
't have been in benghazi in the way he was on that day, september 11. and then finally senator mccain stressed why wasn't there some u.s. military power available to come to the rescue of the people who were trapped in the embassy annex so that people wouldn't have ended up dying on the roof essentially unable to protect themselves against the mortar fire they were taking. and you could see, he's still angry about it. >> rose: the other thing he considered unacceptable was her response with senator johnson when she said, "what difference does it make?" >> i thought that was an especially poignant response from secretary clinton. and it reflected an uncertainty to this day i'm told among intelligence officers who have reviewed the evidence they have of what happened that night believing it or not they still don't know precisely how that attack came to happen. they know there were terrorists who were associated with al qaeda, were part of the group. they know there were others who kind of wandered into the scene. and when secretary clinton said "what difference does it make exactly how
, along with lindsey graham and senator mccain and others. in the interim, i urged the administration to act immediately to suspend foreign assistance if the tunisian government permitted in obstructing the investigation. on january 4, i received a tepid response from the acting deputy, assistant administrator for public affairs at usaid, which i submit for the record, it was a bland assurance that the tunisian government was cooperating. was cooperating? five weeks and the f.b.i. had to wait? then the f.b.i. three hours to talk to him? and we gave this government $325 million last year. today i wrote usaid expressing my disappointment that the administrator himself could not respond directly to a member of congress who serves on a committee of jurisdiction and further pointed out what should be obvious, the tunisian government did not cooperate. the tunisian government never sought the aid, u.s. taxpayer money was in jeopardy. they have not faced a single consequence for undermining u.s. national security. i submit the letter for the record. sadly, the failure to respond forcibly and
. >>brian: tell me what you think of this from senator mccain and senator rand paul. >> i categorically reject your answer to senator johnson about, well, we didn't ask these survivors who were flown to ramstein the next day, that this was not a spontaneous demonstration. to say it was because an investigation was going on -- >> had i been president at the time and i found you did not read the cables from benghazi, did not read the cables from ambassador stevens, i would have relieved you of your post. i think it's inexcusable. >> those were two of the best statements made along with senator johnson's question. what did she do with the statement from senator mccain and the statement from senator paul? she didn't reply at all. then they went on to the next question. >>brian: her answer was interesting and it was very easy, for four months she had the answer. her answer was everything is addressed to me that comes into the state department. but i don't see every cable. it is not possible. >> it's too much for me to read. you know what? it's her job to know things. it's her job to execute
paul, and this is also a look at -- the faces of the republicans, rand paul, ron johnson and john mccain looked so pathetic. and to me, there's something called decorum. and when rand paul sits there and to the second highest ranking official in our country and someone who has done a spectacular job says i would have had your job, that's pathetic. that's the amateur hour. and that's the republicans. >> willie. >> he's got a right to challenge her on it. he's not supposed to sit there. >> that is nir jtheir job. >> and just celebrate you. >> i would have relieved you of your duty? >> that's an idiot. >> kelly o'donnell, you were up on the hill yesterday. aside from all the fireworks, we saw some good pieces of videotape there. did we learn anything new actually about what happened on september 11th in benghazi? is there any new information to come out of that hearing? >> well, there were some threads and details that were interesting, i thought. secretary clinton talked about the fact that they did not have access to the surveillance video that showed what went on for a period of weeks. i
things that we see greater cooperation on. >> senator mccain. >> thank you. again, thank you for allowing me the honor of introducing you to the committee and i look forward to many of our spirited conversations that we have had for many years. i didn't want to bring it up but since it was brought up, i have to respond again. americans do care. they do care. they do care why four americans were murdered and they do care why the american people were misled. they were misled by the talking points that the sec -- that secretary rice told the american people which were false. they were misled when the information that we needed to know about how those talking points were put together, which we still don't know the answers to, many months later. we were misled when it was -- when we were not allowed to -- when we don't -- still haven't gotten answers why there was not better security at the consulate when there was clear indications of the threat. we were misled when we were not told that there was a request for the 16-member security force to remain at the consulate and were removed. the list
from israel and from afghanistan, john mccain and kelly ayotte and other senators who just returned from visiting in egypt with morsi to discuss these very issues. the people of egypt and morsi in particular know that continuing a relationship with israel is key to u.s. foreign aid, that there needs to be a strong military commitment in israel specifically to protect the sinai because we know that weapons are being shipped up through the sinai to gaza to hamas. so, this is, as you say, a continuation of a previous agreement, it is going to continue and even the people of israel agree it's important to make sure that the egyptian military is strong, but egypt needs to continue its commitment to the camp david accord. >> sean: but senator johnson, the egyptian military now, some of the key leaders that we thought were more moderate, they're gone. morsi has gotten rid of them and now give them f-16 fighter jets and tanks, i've got to be honest, sometimes i wonder, this guy was a former terrorist in the muslim brotherhood. help me out, how does this-- how does this strategically work fo
mccain, who lost in the 2008 presidential race said, "i would like to have seen some more outreach." house speaker john boehner has a question on his home page on the web, asking "will senate democrats ever pass a budget. the last time they tackled the most basic responsibility of governing was on april 29, 2009." with the house set to vote this week, the speaker's office has a new graphic on the web page showing just some of the things that could of been done in a similar four-year span. they include building the pentagon three times, go on 179 round trips to the moon, or build the keystone xl pipeline twice. president obama has won more inaugural event to attend to. that is this morning. the president and vice-president joe biden will be attending a prayer service at the national cathedral. that begins around 9:45. you can watch it on c-span3 or listen to it here on c-span radio. acts at about 10:30. those are some of the latest headlines on c-span radio. >[video clip] >> from the start, organized military of always spent a lot of their time fighting a conventional, a regular war

, september 11. and then finally, senator mccain stressed why wasn't there some u.s. military power available to come to the rescue of the people who were trapped in the embassy annex so that people wouldn't have ended up dying on the roof essentially unable to protect themselves against the mortar fire they were taking. and you could see, he's still angry about it. >> rose: the other thing he considered unacceptable was her response with senator johnson when she said, "what difference does it make?" >> i thought that was an especially poignant response from secretary clinton. and it reflected an uncertainty to this day, i'm told among intelligence officers who have reviewed the evidence they have of what happened that night, believing it or not, they still don't know precisely how that attack came to happen. they know there were terrorists who were associated with al qaeda, were part of the group. they know there were others who kind of wandered into the scene. and when secretary clinton said, "what difference does it make exactly how it came together, let's find it and punish them." she was
newtown. senator john mccain is on the senate foreign relations panel now. so is senator rand paul. on the senate side we may have some more pointed questions, but we will have to see. on the house side, they say they want to have more bipartisan attitude towards hearings. it is hard to tell at this point. there's a lot of new blood. this is their first chance, a big public opportunity to show where they are headed. so it is hardr -- to tell. probably the senate will have more pointed questions. host: give us a hint of something you will be watching for today. is there anything secretary clinton could do to damage your future politically? anything the republicans could do that might signify how confirmation hearings could go in the next couple weeks for secretary of state? guest: a few lawmakers, and the gramm in particular, have said that they had wanted to hear her testify before taking action on senator john kerry. -- lindsey graham in particular has said. the fallout from benghazi is already happened, to a large extent. president obama's first choice to be secretary of state, s
. was that the only time they spoke? >> again, i don't know. i'm not sure -- >> senator mccain was asking about the president's role. >> made a huge issue out of what i made clear our view is a nonissue which are the talking points that were provided to senators, members of the house and to members of the administration. the nonclassified talking points. which have no bearing on what happened in benghazi and the immediate reaction of this administration. in response to it. as secretary clinton made clear today in her testimony or at least her initial round of testimony, and as was made clear in the accountability review board report, there was no delay in response, every asset was brought to bear to try to provide assistance. no requests were denied. a lot of the reporting around this has proven to be wrong. and -- or the speculation around it has proven to be wrong. on the fundamental issues here about what happened, who was responsible, the response and reaction to it and now the investigations that have taken place in our -- and are continuing at the president's direction. so, you know, the
the statement. >> senator john mccain there. senator feinstein behind him. >> mitch mcconnell was the one that famously said we immediate to make this a one-term president. there he is there at coffee this morning. >> he has since said that was a political effort and once that didn't come to pass he's completely reconciled to the fact he has to work with him and get business done. i could add, anderson, the president said because he's now re-elected he has been telling his aides that this is an opportunity almost to experience his inauguration important the first time. >> al franken on the right. >> because at first -- in the original inauguration, he was so focused on the financial crisis, economic crisis, there was a national security threat on the day of the inauguration, and -- they were consumed by the crises at the moment. they almost couldn't concentrate on what was happening that day. >> 20 years ago, bill clinton was leaving right at this moment, his speech writers were still with him. taylor got in the limousine and writing the speech over to the white house. >> wow. >> didn't e
